Qantas uses the subsidiary ''Air Link'' for many of its internal flights, particularly between smaller regional locations. I was amazed at the quality of this flight and the service, which I found to be equal to many international flights I had used. We used this same group (Air Link) continuing on to Perth 5 days later and the service was equal to the Cairns - Alice Springs flight. (So it means the quality is fairly standard). I foumd the leg space in the Economy section excellent compared to the space offered on a recent Jetstar flight from Brisbane to Cairns and the token packaged quiche offered on both the short (2 - 3 hour flights) were more than sufficient and delicious compared to a lot of full course airline meals received on previous flights. For a regional airline, I was quite impressed with ''Air Link'' and would have no hesitation booking on similar flights again.
